That's quite a detailed annual report. 25 Crown St NASHUA, NH, 03060 is MakeIt Labs, a shared maker space. 11 Depot St Concord NH comes back with a restaurant, nothing about the upper floors.

Well, it appears P&W is running the Blackstone Valley Tourism Council's "Polar Express" this year. I'm not seeing involvement by BSRC.

At the risk of being repetitious, anybody seen FL9 #2027 lately?

It's that time of year again, folks.. Will they bother file a report? Or will they finally admit defeat?

Place your bets!

They should get a contract with NHDOT to study service to Manchester and Concord. Or even run it as a pilot service. I mean, Salem MA to Manchester is 1/2 of BSRR phase 2, they've already developed a plan, right?

Did you mean Lowell MA to Manchester and Concord?

I'd think they'd need money "up front" from NHDOT to even study their navels, let alone a new service. I think they're pretty much broke. With their "track" record <groan! :wink: >, if you were NHDOT, would you give them money up front? I wouldn't.. But, who knows.. Stranger things have happened..

What does BSR stand for? Bullsh!t Railroad? LOL. If they want service, which makes sense, they should just contract it with P&W.
